You are still looking for a walker that makes you feel confident when walking about. The Phoenix upright walker might be the perfect solution. An upright walker allows you to stand and use forearm supports instead of putting more pressure through your arms like with a traditional walker.
Let's Talk About Upright Walkers
The Phoenix looks different from a traditional rollator. It has a seat and 4 wheels but the top of the frame extends upward to support the forearms and help you maintain an upright position while walking. Why might this be better? An upright walker reduces the load on your all your joints as your weight is distributed evenly. The larger base of the walker makes many feel more secure when walking.
The Phoenix upright rollator walker has a stable frame design that accommodates your shifted center of gravity when standing upright. The 10" front wheels and 8" rear wheels make it easy and comfortable to use on all types of terrain. Like a traditional rollator, it gives you a place to sit and rest. The Phoenix comes equipped with both a cane holder and under seat storage bag.
In 4 color choices : Red, Blue & Purple.
What Makes the Phoenix different:
An upright walker is another option when looking to maintain your independence. This is a very well designed walker with every detail considered.
